Guide dog

Guide dogs are dogs that are especially selected and trained to guide the blind. The first training schools were established in Germany in the years 1911-1918, the United States in 1929 (The Seeing Eye), and the British Guide Dog Association[?] was founded in 1931.

Guide dogs are a type of assistance dog.

Among the most-used breeds for the approximately four-month training course are German shepherds (Alsatians), Labradors, and Golden retrievers[?].
